Home' Weddings Shoalhaven : 2011 Contents Have you ever noticed
how when your hair isn't
done or you're having "a
bad hair day" you just don't feel
entirely ready? Times the feeling
by 10 and that's what any bride
who neglects to properly
organise her bridal hair will
experience. Your hair and
headdress on the day of your
wedding will complete your
entire ensemble. With all the
other costs associated with
bridal attire and preparation, it
may be tempting to think you
can handle hair yourself. But
unless you have eyes in the back
of your head, it's best to leave it
to the professionals to get your
locks looking luscious. Besides,
the last things you need to be
worrying about on your big day
are bobby pins and hairspray.
A hairstylist will be able to come
to you, so you can relax while
getting ready to face all those
The hairstylist, however talented,
won't be able to work utter mira-
cles on badly damaged hair, so
there are a number of things you
can do in the lead up to ensure
your hair is beautiful, not brittle.
If you are looking to grow your
hair before the big day, talk to a
hairdresser about how to
achieve this. It is often better to
have your hair trimmed more
frequently to get rid of split ends
and allow it to grow healthily.
Don't forgo regular cuts, as even
though you may achieve length,
it will be at the cost of quality.
Don't think you have enough
time to get Rapunzel-like length
before the day? Most hair salons
now offer hair extensions that
can be matched to your colour
To get your hair looking
touchable before the wedding,
regular conditioning, whether at
home or at a salon is a must.
Leave-in treatments range from
luxurious oils to nourish hair to
moisture-heavy creamy solutions
to seal ends.
Indulging in a head massage
has the benefit of not only
distributing natural and
aromatherapy oils throughout
your scalp, but will leave you
feeling relaxed and calm.
If you are looking to change
your colour, make sure you get
professional advice on which
tones are going to suit your skin
tone and dress.
Unless you have a year or two
up your sleeve, it's best not to
experiment with colour.

making a grand exit
all tressed up
It is a wedding tradition for the bride and
groom to be farewelled by their guests
before making their departure to their hotel or
home. Usually the guests form a circle or a line
of some kind as the happy couple make their
way around or through the guests to say their
The bride usually tosses the bouquet just prior
to this in a symbolic 'passing on' to the next
young lady to be wed.
Often the newlyweds will change into their
going away clothes to indicate it is time for
them to leave. However it is up to you and
depends on the style of wedding as to whether
you will depart in this fashion.
Many couples these days stay on dancing the
night away, and can be among the last to
Or in circumstances where festivities continue
on throughout the week or weekend, there is
no distinct exit of the bride and groom.
It is worth considering as whatever you choose
to do will mark the end of your celebrations
and the start of life as a married couple.
